.New pattern...WONDERLAND.

I'm feeling well overdue for a brand new pattern release, so am pleased to introduce you to Wonderland :)
The Wonderland dress is destined to be loved by girls of all ages.  A dress with a more formal approach, Wonderland is suitable for a special occasion...think birthday parties, weddings, special dinners.
The sweet ribbon trim on the dainty cap sleeves and skirt hem adds a gorgeous touch of detail, allowing you to use a more subtle fabric and let the ribbon shine!
 
With pleats galore and buttons down the back, Wonderland will be perfect for any fancy-do!
I am SO pleased with this gorgeous little dress.  My motivation behind it was that I needed something a little bit fancy - but not to fluffy and over the top.  I didn't want the dress to be one that hung in the cupboard and was only every now and then because it was too "special".  Wonderland is the perfect compromise!  
The entire skirt is pleated around the top, which makes it look a little more classy and topped off with little cap sleeves and a neat row of buttons down the back, I think it is the cutest thing ever!

Wonderland is avaliable in two size ranges
6 months-5 years and 
6 years-10 years 
so none of your little girls will miss out on this one!
You can find out fabric requirements for Wonderland on the website. If you have a store and want to stock this or any other Make It Perfect patterns, contact Creative Abundance to place an order. 
If you would like to purchase a copy of Wonderland for yourself, they should be popping up in retail stores very soon. Ask your favourite store to get one in for you!
I'm giving away a copy of Wonderland (in your choice of size range) to one lucky reader - leave a comment on this post to be in the running!
(Please make sure you leave an email address with your comment.  Giveaway will close Tuesday 29th March and winner will be drawn via a random number generator.)

SUPPLIES:
Make It Perfect, Wonderland sewing pattern
Saffron Craig, Magical Lands, Magic Spots in green

You're so right about needing pretty dresses that aren't 'too special to wear'. This one is adorable and I know my 2 year old would love it. Perfect for autumn too.

Very pretty, and great that the pattern has the larger size. It can be so hard to find a cute pattern for the 6-10 year olds.

Lovely dress. We have just moved from Aus to Switzerland and they don't have school uniforms.
So with 3 girls and a great excuse for lots more dresses this patern would get a great workout in my house!

Love this pattern. Look forward to it being available in the US!

Rebecca said...

you know I saw Lil in this and wondered if it was a new one. Loved it. it looks very professional - like something you'd buy in a high end children's store. ( not that I shop anywhere like that - I don't really think I could justify $100 a dress - now I won't have too!!! I'll just make one!!)

Anita said...

What a sweet dress, it is just so simple and perfect. I really want to make one for my daughter.

Tiffany said...
